Pakistani Telefilm “Zainab Ke Qaatil” has Sparked a Major Debate on Social Media!

Earlier this year, a 6-year- old girl, Zainab, was raped and murdered in Kasur, Punjab. This horrific incident not only saddened the nation but also the Pakistani celebrities who condemned the murder and demanded the public hanging of the culprit. Moreover, the renowned Pakistani designer, Frieha Altaf and actress Nadia Jamil shared their childhood experience of sexual abuse. Zainab murder case also became the reason for a special performance in LUX Style Awards ‘Mein Bhi’ for the sake of awareness.

Recently, a local news channel announced that it would be airing a telefilm based on the most talked about rape case of Pakistan, Zainab murder case. According to the channel, it is an effort to create awareness among parents about the pedophiles and importance of good or bad touch. The telefilm is written by the famous novelist and playwright of Pakistan, Umera Ahmed, the same writer who penned down Qandeel Baloch’s story for Baaghi. The telefilm will be directed by Aamir Yousuf. Hamna Amir, Mikaal Zulfiqar Aijaz Aslam, Saba Faisal, Irfan Khoosat and Suhail Sameer will be also seen in the telefilm.
